Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1) by Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color. The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war-- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now. Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
     Shatter Me burst into my life and shattered my soul. There is just so much, too much, to love about it. Juliette is so wonderful. Extraordinary. She was relatable. She was crazy and fun and caring. She acted like a real girl. Silly and with thoughts like gibberish. Not poised and unreal. She was innocent, but she was better and stronger for it. It made her unafraid to be herself. She and Adam are the ultimate fairy tale. So in love that you can’t stop thinking about each other. Doing anything to be together. Adam is SO my new book boyfriend. He was funny and sarcastic. The first chapters are my favorites as they relearn each other and Juliette shows him her environment. He is adorably surprised about everything. They are wonderful together and made me laugh and smile the whole time. The supporting characters of Shatter Me are awesome, too. Adam’s little brother, James and his friend, Kenji are hilarious and frank about everything. The ending put a smile on my face as Juliette declared herself a superhero because all through the book, that is what I was convinced she was.
